Add Stuart Appleby’s name to the list of contenders after the Aussie poured in a 55-footer for birdie on the ninth hole to make the turn in 4 under and move within two of the lead.
Aussies always tend to fare well in Texas events -- the wind, the grasses, etc., are similar to what they’re used to in Australia -- and that’s playing out again here at Colonial.
How good has Appleby been the last three rounds? Well, he has just one bogey -- and 14 birdies -- over his last 27 holes. And remember, he shot a final-round 59 to win at The Greenbrier last year.
